    Just drove my new S3 home....whey hey !!!

    Welcome & congrats on the new motor! You have the best colour combination too (not that Im biased in anyway:whistle2:) How does the S3 compare to the 4motion? I nearly bought one but was swayed by the quality/class & exclusivity (compared to the V6) of the S3.

    Thinking of selling any guess what it worth???

    Wow, she looks stunning and sits just right! Private I reckon if you held out it would fetch 10 to 10.5k. As a trade in 9k but who knows! I guess it all depends what you px it against & how much the other car costs. By the way which shape M3 are you considering?

    Poss Oil leak?

    No drip tray there mate but good idea using a big kerb, as I dont have a proper trolley jack or ramps. I think I will have the garage look at it sometime next week. Im just hoping its nowt too serious!

    Poss Oil leak?

    Guys, The other day I discovered what appeared to be a slight oil leak coming from the passengers side of the engine bay. The best way I can describe it, is that it appeared to be coming from somewhere near/underneath the battery. It didnt appear to be engine oil as it evaporated/washed...

    Oe alloys or reps?

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have found a company that will do a complete and total refurb of my oe rims and to any colour of my choice for £270. That includes taking tyres off and putting them back on etc. Think that may be the sensible option.. Cheers

    Oe alloys or reps?

    Guys, Im considering either refurbing my s3 oe alloys or buying a set of rs4 reps (old style 9 spokes). Im just undecided what to do. I know that the oe rims are no doubt lighter & more durable than reps. I know that the reps also have a tendancy to crack. Has anyone else had first had...

    An unfortunate introduction

    Welcome mate. I would defo have a reputable garage check it out or if you know anyone with vagcom they maybe able to help? It could be the headgasket but I would also be looking at the coils, turbo, maf sensor etc. More importantly I note you bought the car from a dealer. Get on their...

    s3 problems

    Thats excellent service by the garage if they are doing all the above. How many miles has the old girl done? Just curious as its quite a few things that have need fixing.. But I guess mileage aint the be all & end all.. Glad you got it sorted. Enjoy the vauxhall :laugh:

    Thats very good price. Is that discounted? According to superchips website it costs more like £499? My local garage use a superchips mobile fitter & they said they could get it a bit cheaper than the web price but Im not sure if they could get it that cheap?

    Creak from driver footwell

    I had a similar prob on my mkiv golf, I changed the top mounts & had the engine mounts checked but that didnt solve it. It ended up being the sub frame bolts had not been tightened enough! I couldnt believe all that sound was coming from that. Is your cars suspension standard? If its not...

    Big mile problem

    I wouldnt let that bother you. There are plenty out there with higher mileage than mate. I think Jeffers999 has similar mileage & his is remapped & still runs sweet (trust me I saw it take off on the rr day at awesome!) As long as you get it serviced at regular intervals & look after it the...

    I second the above comments. If you bought it from a garage where they too your old car as px then they are screwed. Did you get a receipt of any sort? Traders as a minimum should give you 3 months warranty on stuff such as the engine, turbo, gearbox... If you get no joy via the phone call...

    Thinking about gettin rid of the A3

    Dave you must have been hammering the ctr if you got less mpg than the S3! The great thing I thought about the ctr was that the mpg were very reasonable depending how you drove it obviously ;) My S3 seems to drink more petrol than both my ctr's ever did. The ctr in the wet was pants but in...

    Thinking about gettin rid of the A3

    Tell me who won out of the CTR and the WRX? It seemed that the WRX didnt really have a good take off? Just curious as Ive owned 2 scoobs & 2 CTR's. For the money a CTR is a great car. I think they are far better than audi in the twisties and when on song its a very fast car. They are...
